I have been a member on a LiveJournal writing community for eighteen months, and believe I've grown in writing skills immensely. Right now, I'm developing one story in hopes of publishing a novel by the end of the year. I'm very interested in learning how this forum works, meeting new people, giving and receiving feedback, and learning more to enhance my skills. I write fiction, creative nonfiction, and dabble in free verse poetry. The story that I'm currently working on doesn't really fit into a single genre. It involves supernatural elements, suspense and murder, and a dash of romance. I haven't been very diligent in a daily writing routine, unfortunately, and that needs to change quickly if I'm to meet my goals. I look forward to getting to know fellow writers here!
